This Thursday, September 11, 2014, the United State will observe the thirteenth anniversary of that horrific morning in 2001. Even today, nearly a generation later, it is difficult to watch video of that day. There is virtually nothing we can add to all the words spoken about that day. At the same time, we ought to acknowledge that many other countries have suffered terrorist actions, and every grieving family in every country can rightly say that their loss is like no other.
